The 84-acre Hunts Disposal site is an inactive landfill in Caledonia Township, Racine County, Wisconsin. Onsite features include a 35-acre landfill surrounded by woodlands, wetlands, agricultural areas, and a lake. Part of the site that includes the landfill is within the 100-year floodplain of the Root River. The site overlies a contaminated surficial sand and gravel aquifer. By 1961, municipal and industrial wastes were dumped and burned in an onsite open pit. Specific wastes disposed of onsite included waste newspaper ink, spent solvents, tannery wastes, chromic acids, arsenic acid, and beryllium. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses both source control and management of contaminant migration. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, TCE, and xylenes; acids; and metals including arsenic and chromium.
